How to Launch a Userlytics Test on Android: for External Participants

Userlytics allows testers the flexibility to take fun, easy, and PAID usability tests right from their mobile phones. Whether you’re an iOS user or an Android user, getting started with mobile testing on the Userlytics mobile app is quick and simple! Below, we’ll go over how to launch a Userlytics test on an Android device if you are NOT currently a Userlytics panel tester, and were personally invited to your Userlytics test via an email or other messaging platform.

1. Locate Test with Unique Code

To begin a Userlytics test on Android, you must first locate the unique test code you received via email or another messaging platform. Once you have located your code, open the Userlytics mobile app and click the button that reads “I have a code.” 

After clicking the “I have a code” button, you will be directed to a new screen with a placeholder for your test code. In the placeholder that says “Unique Code,” enter the code associated with the usability test you will be taking. Make sure to toggle the bar that indicates you accept the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Then, select the “Continue” button.

2. Begin Test Preview

After you locate the usability test you wish to take, the test preview will begin automatically, and will check your phone’s hardware to ensure everything is working properly. After these checks are completed, you may click on the button that says “Finish Preview.”

3. Start Test

After completing the test preview, a new screen will appear detailing some instructions for what you can expect during the test. After reading through the instructions, click on the button that says “Start.”

4. Allow Camera Access

After clicking on the “Start” button, a pop-up window will appear letting you know that the usability test will require access to your camera. Select the button that says “Continue.”

5. Allow Screen Recording by Selecting “Start Now” Option

Next, another pop-up will appear letting you know that the app will record your screen throughout the duration of the test. Depending on the type of device you have, this pop-up may appear slightly different. Select the option that says “Start” or “Start Now.”

6. Begin Tasks

After selecting “Start Now,” you will be redirected to the start of your test where you will complete your test tasks. Happy testing!
